RINGER OF THE WEEK Glorious musical journeys to far a way lands both acoustic and electric are delivered by trombonist Doug Scarborough and his wide ranging team of violinist Akram Abdulfattah, pianist Jeremy Siskind, bassist Damian Erskine, drummer Reinhardt Melz and Mustafa Boztuy on the hand percussive darbuka. The themes range widely, going from a table dance between the leader and Siskind on "Imaginal Cells" to a get down funk fest with Erskine's electric bass on "The Everything". There's a fusiony drama with Mid Eastern harmonies and Saharan moods with Boztuy on "Mosaic" and Adbulfattah soars to dramatic heights with the glowing trombone on "Limitless". The rhythm team gallops like a stallion to Melz's cymbals on the flowing "Arabesque" with the team closing things out on a grandiose scale on the classy "The Source of the Longest River" as Siskind and Scarborough flow like a gentle stream in the hill country. Panoramic in scale.
